Uncut Gems

The Story

A charismatic jeweller makes a high-stakes bet that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime. In a precarious high-wire act, he must balance business, family and adversaries on all sides in pursuit of the ultimate win.

The Good

I just watched this movie on Netflix and I thought it was great. Adam Sandler is great in this movie, he’s not playing the typical comedy character your used to seeing here. He plays a straight role as a down on his luck jeweller who’s in debt with some gangsters and needs to make a big score to pay them. The cast and story is great, there’s celebrity cameos from NBA player Kevin Garnett and The Weekend, who played good parts in the movie. The movie is a rollercoaster of emotions and has to be one of the best movies of 2019.

The Bad

There’s not a lot of things I can say that we’re bad in this movie apart from some wtf moments of what are you doing, you’re going to get killed?! The only other thing was you doing get to see the aftermath of the ending. It’s not totally necessary and would have made the movie longer, but it leaves you guessing. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

The Verdict

Uncut Gems is a great movie full of emotional and great scenes, I can see why it get a lot of praise and attention.

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ out of five stars.
